Painter Brigid McGivern creates visceral works that ignite the imagination. Her furious, colorful brushstrokes recall the works of Willem de Kooning and the pioneers of abstraction, tackling themes of isolation, grief and remorse.
Using acrylic and oil pastel on canvas, the artist fills her frames with fiery reds and somber blues that build with tension. From our longing for social acceptance to the despair of losing a loved one, McGivern taps into our innermost desires and fears, unafraid to face the most painful aspects of human existence.
